Ben Shapiro Claims Women Will ‘Hold Their Nose’ Voting for Trump Over Sanders

Shapiro is embroiled in controversy after saying women would "hold their nose" to vote for President Trump over Bernie Sanders.

Daily Wire founder Ben Shapiro is embroiled in controversy after saying women would “hold their nose” to vote for President Donald Trump over Democrat Bernie Sanders.

While referring to Democrats besides Sanders as “moderate” — a group which includes candidates like Pete Buttigieg, who favors a destabilizing war in Syria, and radically pro-abortion Michael Bloomberg — Shapiro said women would be inclined to vote for them, and claimed women would have to hold their nose to vote for President Trump.

“If you are putting suburban women in the position of having to choose between their job or their husbands’ job, their income, their health plan, and Bernie’s socialism, they’re going to hold their nose, many of them, and vote for Trump,” said Shapiro.

Shapiro’s claim has left many Trump supporting women upset with his comments.

Before the 2016 election, Shapiro declared himself “Never Trump” and incorrectly insisted that Donald Trump would not nominate conservative judges to the Supreme Court. Shapiro recently defended Senator Mitt Romney‘s vote to impeach President Trump.

Shapiro has previously found himself in hot water over his racist comment that “Arabs like to bomb crap and live in open sewage.” Shapiro walked out of an interview with BBC host Andrew Neil after being confronted with his own words.

UPDATE: Corey Lewandowski, the former campaign manager for Donald Trump, wrote “Clearly ⁦⁦@benshapiro⁩ is a dummy. If he looked at the exit polls in NH he would have seen that ⁦@realDonaldTrump⁩ received a higher % of WOMEN than men.”
